In his second release for Monotonik, German artist Ckid (also known as Crashkid) expands on his chilled but warm style that's marvellously close to the indie side of electronica, and all the better for it. We can only stand the beeps for so long, you know. So, lead-off track "TV-People" tickles you under the chin with drifty organ and crispy percussion action, before phasing in and out some nifty melodics. See, drifty, crispy, nifty? At which point, "Speaksoon" takes organic... favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 1 reviews ) Topic: Electronic

The debut from Brazil's butterbox is one of the most truly enjoyable releases you'll ever have the pleasure of soaking in. During the initial listen, the acoustic guitar is what will stick out the most, looping through sections that are gently fighting the piano melodies.
